Samsung stepping up in the un-boxing experience

Most phones come with flimsy manuals with complicated language and jargon. These books, which can live on a bookshelf actually contain the phone.
Each page reveals the elements of the phone in the right order, helping the user to set up the sim card, the battery and even slide the case onto the phone.

The second book is the main manual – the phone actually slots into this and becomes the center of attention.
Arrows point to the exact locations the user should press, avoiding confusion and eliminating the feeling of being lost in a menu.

Want to attach content to barcodes?


Stickybits
, claims to be “a fun and social way to attach digital content to real world objects” which sounds very interesting. Imagine the possibilities for on-pack promotions – buy a can of Coke, scan the barcode, and a whole range of digital/exclusive content (photos, videos, music etc) is automatically delivered direct to your mobile phone. Scan a cereal box barcode and get recipes, attach a video to a birthday card (Stickybits also allow you to print your own unique barcodes for personal use). It all sounds great, but there’s a massive barrier, the consumer needs to download the app in order to get the content. Will apps like this ever replace the simple mechanic of a text message?

‘SHAKY’ iPHONE AD

picture-21

If you’ve ever downloaded an iPhone application that takes advantage of the phone’s accelerometer technology, you know how much fun it can be to shake, rattle and roll the device to make things happen.

Advertisers are finally getting that message. OMD and Razorfish have developed the first truly interactive, shakable iPhone ad for Dockers.
